Buffalo Wings

I don't usually deep fry my food, I try to bake them as far as I could. Firstly, it is because I don't like to clean up the mess after the spilling oil war; secondly, I kind of having a phobia against deep frying. However, when it comes to buffalo wings, I not only have the appetite of a buffalo, but also the courage of it. 

Traditionally, the wings were deep fried with no batter, and the sauce is only made up of Frank's hot sauce, butter and vinegar. However, I just couldn't resist those crispy batter, which acts like a thirsty sponge readily absorbs all the hot sauce. Biting down the crispy yet sauce-drenched batter immediately wake up every inch of my taste bud. Yum yum...

So, no, this is not the traditional buffalo wings. But, yes, it is very delicious.

Beware, if you are not a fan of sour food, this is not for you.
